This clinical case report is based on a presentation at the Faculty Case Conference held in June 2001. Identifying data has been altered to protect confidentiality. This presentation discusses specific difficulties encountered by one adult offspring in caring for his aging parents who are declining in functioning, and the course of consultation around the presented difficulties.

Aging and the decline in functioning leading up to death are part of the natural process of all living beings. Bowen family systems theory speaks specifically to the factors that manifest variability in the course of these processes for individuals and the variability of responsiveness to these processes by members of the family emotional system.
